New belts are sometimes not ok, some have to much tension and are too small. Sometimes the tension is so high that the drives moves to the left side.

Too much tension also stresses the motor and needs to much power, the motor can not regulate it any more and makes “wowow”…

The right tension is very low, just test the belt that it does not work like chewing gum… getting bigger and bigger.

A good belt is stiff and keeps it’s size and dimension, not like a rubber band or chewing gum…
